Recenzii

""An Army at Dawn may be the best World War II battle narrative since Cornelius Ryan's classics, "The Longest Day and "A Bridge Too Far." -"The Wall Street Journal
"Exceptional . . . A work strong in narrative flow and character portraits of the principle commanders . . . [A] highly pleasurable read."" -The New York Times Book Review
"A splendid book . . . The emphasis throughout is on the human drama of men at war."" -The Washington Post Book World
"Atkinson's account will be a monument among accounts of World War II."" -John S. D. Eisenhower, author of "Allies and "The Bitter Woods
"One of the most compelling pieces of military history I've ever read." -Gen. Wesley K. Clark, USA (ret.), former NATO Supreme Commander
"A master of the telling profile . . . This vivid, personality-driven account of the campaign to drive Axis forces from North Africa shows the political side of waging war, even at the tactical level." "-Chicago Tribune
""An Army at Dawn is more than a military history, it is a social and psychological inquiry as well." -Paul Fussell, author of "Doing Battle and Wartime
"Brilliant . . . This is history and war in the hands of a gifted and unflinching writer."" -"The Kansas City Star

"Exceptional . . . A work strong in narrative flow and character portraits of the principle commanders . . . [A] highly pleasurable read."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"A master of the telling profile . . . This vivid, personality-driven account of the campaign to drive Axis forces from North Africa shows the political side of waging war, even at the tactical level."--"Chicago Tribune"
"In his gripping "An Army at Dawn," Rick Atkinson skilfully chronicles . . . the invasion of North Africa in World War II . . . [This is] the first volume of the "Liberation Trilogy," in which Mr. Atkinson intends to tell the entire story of the U.S. armed forces in the European theatre. Based on this book, he is off to a rip-roaring start. An Army at Dawn may be the best World War II battle narrative since Cornelius Ryan's classics, "The Longest Day" and "A Bridge Too Far.""--Max Boot, "The Wall Street Journal"
"A book that stands shoulder to shoulder with the other major books about the war, such as the fine writing of Cornelius Ryan and John Keegan."--Associated Press
"Atkinson's book is eminently friendly and readable, but without compromising normal standards of accuracy and objectivity. More than a military history, it is a social and psychological inquiry as well. His account of the Kasserine Pass disaster is alone worth the price of the book and stands as an exciting preview of the rich volumes to come. I heartily recommend this human, sensitive, unpretentious work."--Paul Fussell, author of "Doing Battle "and "Wartime"
"This is a wonderful book--popular history at its best. It is impressively researched and superbly written, and it brings to life in full detail one of the vitally important but relatively 'forgotten' campaigns of World War II. What Bruce Catton and Shelby Foote did for the Civil War in their trilogies, Rick Atkinson is doing for World War II in the European Theater."--Professor Mark A. Stoler, author of "Allies and Adve
